Abstract [en]

Energy efficiency in industry could be promoted in various ways, energy management being one of the most promising tools. Apart from reduced energy use and costs, energy management has large opportunities for reducing environmental impact. However, research in this field is scarce, both as regards theoretical approaches and empirical studies like in-depth evaluation, underlining the importance of research in this field. The aim of this paper is to present results from an in-depth evaluation conducted in 2009-2010 of the extensive energy management practices undertaken by the Swedish pump manufacturers, ITT Water & Wasterwater. The company has received the Swedish Foundry Association’s energy prize and is considered the most energy efficient foundry in Sweden. The paper is unique as it presents new knowledge on how such in-depth evaluation could be conducted. Results indicate that the IT-based energy management system together with extensive implementation of energy efficiency measures have increased energy efficiency at the foundry by more than 27% for electricity and 68% for district heating.
